With tablets and smartphones taking over the mobile space. I was thinking that it would be cool if GPSGateServer would be able to dispatch directly to a smartphone or tablet instead of through a tracking device and then to the Garmin PND device as is currently. This way we won't have to focus on just a few tracking device that is supported and would also reduce work for the GPSGate team trying to support many and different tracking devices for dispatch
It would be much simpler imo if say any GSM android or iOS device is supported and is able to receive jobs sent from GPSGateServer dispatch. No complicated connections from the Garmin PND to the tracking device as well as extra installation.
Customers would also prefer this as they would be able to use regular GSM android or iOS devices instead of buying Garmin PND that can only be used for navigation. Also Android mobile devices in particular are getting cheaper by the month.
So i would imagine GPSGate team developing a dispatch app that once installed on mobile device will allow GPSGatesServer dispatch module to send job to mobile device with this App install. If such app is developed and integrated with GPSGateServer i would definitely buy it and use it for dispatch for businesses.
Just an idea
